Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz (Modojo)

Chris Buffa (Modojo): Super Monkey Ball was a welcome surprise during the GameCube launch, circa 2001. Since that time, Sega has released a new game in the series on just about every platform since, and something has been lost with each new entry, save for Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition for iOS, which was quite impressive. You can chalk up this inconsistency to the publisher dreaming up different ways to reinvent the franchise. Suffice to say, the new Super Monkey Ball: Banana Splitz for PlayStation Vita excels when it heads back to the basics of guiding a tiny primate encased within a sphere through numerous obstacle courses. The gimmicky nonsense, as expected, cheapens the product. (PS Vita, Super Monkeyball: Banana Splitz) 3/5
